[InKunming--New Kunming Construction]  Kunming municipal government has advanced a proposal about forging a clean city in early time this year. To attain this goal, enough garbage dumps should be built up in the city.

Until now, 12 projects about garbage disposal have been established in Kunming. Total disposal volumes of these projects can reach 6,225 tons per day, according to Kunming Urban Management Department.

The 12 garbage dumps are respectively distributed in Wuhua district, Xishan district, Chenggong district, Dongchuan district, airport economic zone, eastern suburbs of the city , Songming county, Luquan county and Xundian county.

Data showed that average daily life garbage output of the city arrives at 4,558.49 tons. Among them, 4,181.5 tons of garbage is disposed every day. Main districts of Kunming including Wuhua, Xishan, Chenggong, and eastern suburbs can completely dispose 3,621.2 tons of garbage per day.

Normally, each ton's garbage can produce electricity of 320 kwh. Based on this principle, garbage volumes from main districts of Kunming can produce electricity of 1,158,784 kwh per day, and generate electricity of 520 million kwh all the year around.
